Services Offered by this Website.
Online Marketplace for Lenders and Other Providers. This Website functions as an online marketplace for you to find third party lenders and other providers that may be of interest to you. By clicking “Submit” or any button indicating acceptance, you are certifying that all of the information you have provided is your loan request form is true, accurate, and complete. Lenders and non-lenders (hereafter “Network Partners”) that participate in our network may use specific criteria, or filters, to identity the consumers with whom they would like to connect with. The Network Partners also specify the prices they will pay us for the opportunity to present an offer to a consumer that meets the Network Partner’s criteria.
When you submit your loan request, PeoplesBank transmits the information you entered in the loan request form through our network in real time, presenting the information to Network Partners electronically until one Network Partner, often the highest bidding, accepts your loan request. You will then be directed to that Network Partner’s website where they may present you an offer for a loan or other products that may be of interest to you. If no Network Partner accepts your loan request, we may present you with an offer to submit another loan request or an offer for a different product. We also may share your contact information with third-party marketers and service providers that may contact you by email or text message/SMS (please note data and messaging rates may apply) to offer you loans or other products that may be of interest to you.
Tribal Lender Disclosure. When you submit a loan request on this Website, you may be connected to a tribal lender or marketplace lender. Tribal lenders may claim exemptions from state licensing and usury caps, based on tribal immunity or bank preemption. Please note that the rates and fees offered by these lenders may be higher than those offered by state-licensed lenders. In addition, with tribal lenders, you may be required to agree to resolve any disputes in a tribal jurisdiction. You are urged to read and understand the terms of any loan offered by any lender, regardless of its lending model, and to reject any particular loan offer that you cannot afford to repay or that include terms that are not acceptable to you. By submitting your loan request, you agree that you have read and understand this above statement.

Your information may be shared with non-lenders or other intermediary service providers, to help connect you with a lender. Providing your information on this Website does not guarantee that you will be approved for a loan. Not all lenders can provide loans in the amounts advertised on the Websites. The amount of time to transfer funds may vary between lenders and may also depend on your individual financial institution. Lenders that participate in the services provided by this website do not offer loans in every state. If you are from a state that the lenders do not service, you will not be connected to a lender.
